What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a hands-on and drug-free approach in dealing many various sicknesses. It is principally directed to anomalies that have to do with the frightened and musculoskeletal systems. For the past decades, it has evolved plenty of other contemporary therapeutic procedures to cater a wider range of diseases. Though chiropractic is basically for curative purposes, it might also help people to maintain well-ness and stop diseases.
The practice of chiropractic medicine involves a range of diagnostic methods including skeletal imaging, observational and tactile assessments, and orthopedic and neurological evaluation. A chiropractor may also refer a patient to an appropriate specialist, or co-manage with another health care provider. Common patient management involves spinal manipulation (SM) and other manual therapies to the joints and soft tissues, rehabilitative exercises, health promotion, electrical modalities, complementary procedures, and lifestyle counseling.
Chiropractors are not licensed to write medical prescriptions or perform major surgery in the U.S., but that recently changed when New Mexico became the first state to allow “advanced practice” trained chiropractors the ability to prescribe certain medications. Their scope of practice varies by state, based on inconsistent views of chiropractic care: some states, such as Iowa, broadly allow treatment of “human ailments”; some, such as Delaware, use vague concepts such as “transition of nerve energy” to define scope of practice; others, such as New Jersey, specify a severely narrowed scope.
